Brentano Introduces Spring 2017 Collection
The Ceramic collection transforms one form of functional art to another: Textiles
Inspired by one of the earliest art forms known to mankind, the Ceramic collection transforms earthenware — from all centuries — into a two-dimensional textile form. In a unique, innovative assortment of color, texture, design and durability, the 17 patterns strengthen Brentano's artistic expression of beauty and performance.
The heart of the collection includes four coordinating patterns — an intricate large-scale textile (Meiping), a small-scale upholstery (Zen), a luxurious velvet (Eloquence) and a FR drapery (Arabesque). Drawing inspiration from the exquisite celadon works produced during the Song Dynasty, Design Director Iris Wang created a series of textiles that define functional art. Introducing daring new textures and innovative color combinations the new collection is clearly quite extraordinary.
Designed for both residential and hospitality applications - in a blend of viscose, cotton, nylon and polyester - Meiping offers an abrasion resistance over 50,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek, Cotton Duck). The large scale repeat (39-3/4" vertical and 14" horizontal) presents the pattern in eight soft colorways — adding a romantic and historical feel to the eloquent home or luxurious office.
